"This is an authoritative and broad survey on the fishes inhabiting California's inland waters. Professionals and amateurs will find valuable information on the ecology of California's six major drainages and the 132 fish species, both native and exotic, that call them home. Population distributions, life histories, social behavior, and feeding habits are all meticulously examined. . . . At the same time, Moyle highlights those critical differences that make each species indispensable and worthy of protection. . . . Moyle includes excellent species-specific illustrations."--from "Ten Books Every California Naturalist Should Own," "California Wild" "Western freshwater fishes provide interesting and difficult problems in taxonomy, evolutionary biology and conservation ecology. Moyle's timely revision of "Inland Fishes of California addresses these issues and provides a wealth of information on the fishes of California. As expected of Professor Moyle, the book is also a status report on the state's native fishes and an eloquent plea to reduce the losses. It will, no doubt, be required reading for anyone interested in western fishes or aquatic conservation."--Douglas F. Markle, Oregon State University "Publication of this work has long been anticipated and will be welcomed by a wide audience in California and elsewhere. It will provide, as did the first edition, a base-line from which an array of people from laymen to scientists will benefit."--W.L. Minckley, co-editor of "Battle Against Extinction: Native Fish Management in the American West
